Pandemic: Legacy Season 0 (Brown) Game
In this final installment of the Pandemic Legacy trilogy, most of the rules that applied in Seasons 1 and 2 are still used. There are several new, varied and added rules but the rulebook will clearly illustrate anything that players need to be familiar with to play this game. The scenario for this new adventure takes you back to December 1961 when the CIA is recruiting newly graduated medical students to help thwart a Soviet research group that is creating bioweapons to destroy the West. A recent Soviet breakthrough using a newly created disease pathogen called MEDUSA is their weapon. Using passports with aliases for allied, neutral and soviet alliances, players work together to meet goals that are introduced during each of twelve months of the New Year. Does your group have the collective determination and careful logical planning skills that it will take to thwart the soviet threat? Find out when you play this strategic, challenging and evolving game for a rewarding cooperative experience!

Can you save humanity from this dangerous new biothreat?
If you think cooperative games are just for kids, this brilliant game will change your mind! 2-4 players work together as members of a highly skilled task force as they try to cure four infectious diseases spreading throughout the different regions of the world. Each player may perform four actions per turn including treating a disease, traveling to another city, or passing a card to another player. Randomly chosen role cards assign occupations to each team member at the beginning of the game and provide different advantages to the basic actions, based on the unique skill set of that member. With outbreaks looming and epidemics increasing the rate of infection at unknown intervals, you'll need seamless teamwork and careful planning in order to discover the cures and save the world. Built-in features such as random shuffling, five different role cards, and a flexible amount of epidemic cards provide a different game every time and allow for easier to harder levels of play. A very cleverly designed game that will take all your wits and may still beat you! Expansions require the Pandemic (#034499) base game to play.
